Our new chickens arrived April 2nd. They are three months old and haven't hit full egg production stage yet. We are getting two eggs a day, two tiny eggs, but in a few weeks production should be up to 5 or 6 a day.

The coop survived very well in spite of the heavy snow load this year. The girls were glad to be in a home with a good size run and a place that is well protected.

Here's the team of inspectors making sure everything is in order and all the facilities are fitting for such a fine flock of ladies.

Once the inspection was over it was time to eat and drink and scratch around for a while.

Can you see the difference between the store bought eggs and our free-range eggs? The yoke in the free-range chicken eggs is much darker, the egg is also much tastier. Now you will just have to visit and try one for yourself.

Lots of wood piled in the bush ready to be hauled out, split and stacked. This will probably be burned in two years as we have quite a supply of firewood already drying. 

Peter and Dave will be here later today so a few more jobs will get done. We keep checking them off but the list never seems to shrink.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
